We celebrated our son's 40th birthday with his family here. We were vacationing from Iowa and chose this place as it was close to our hotel. The food was delicious. The décor was welcoming and the staff was very friendly.

The folks are friendly, food is good, prices are reasonable & they have live music 3 to 4 times a week. I would definitely recommend taking a trip to the Island for lunch or dinner.
